This Week in Belgium
See You There
Perfectly timed with the egg mania on Instagram (the most liked photo on the image app is now a simple picture of an egg), “En Œuf” at Maruani Mercier presents an egg-themed exhibition by Gavin Turk, on of the YBAs (Young British Artists), playing with its many symbolisms and connotations. Recurring themes in his oeuvre are authorship, authenticity and identity. Turk directly gained notoriety with his final graduation show “Cave” in 1991, which resulted in the Royal College of Art refusing to give Turk his degree. The piece consisted of a white studio space only graced by a blue heritage plaque commemorating his presence ‘Gavin Turk worked here 1989-91′.
